While browsing through some letters I have written to editors, I came across one I wrote to the editor of the Morning Sentinel that was published on April 15, 2010.

The subject was the upcoming appointment of lachrymose John Boehner as speaker of the House, and the fact if that came to pass we would find ourselves in deep doodoo.

Well, it came to pass and due to his heavy-handed manner of regulating which issues were on the agenda, we are in deep doodoo. Anything that President Barack Obama suggested was stone-walled to extinction.

It made me think that if I could handicap the bangtails with such accuracy, I would bet like crazy at any and all of the race tracks running and within a month I would be wearing silk underwear. So, I tried handicapping, and I lost my not-so silk shirt.

Life is so unfair!
